Los Alamos MainStreet announced last week it was the recipient of the Spirit of Preservation Award from the New Mexico MainStreet Program.
According to New Mexico MainStreet, the award was for Los Alamos’ performance in its advocacy of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park, which was established in 2014.
Earlier this month, representatives of New Mexico MainStreet met in Artesia to celebrate 30 years of the group’s economic, development and revitalization efforts in New Mexico.
The New Mexico MainStreet’s anniversary awards ceremony recognized the “outstanding achievements and exceptional leadership among the state’s local MainStreet organizations and partners,” according to the group.
“Los Alamos MainStreet provided support in the advocacy efforts of the Los Alamos Historical Society for the Manhattan Project National Historical Park by mobilizing our citizens via email, mail and phone to contact our legislators to support its creation,” said Suzette Fox, Los Alamos MainStreet executive director of the local MainStreet’s efforts.
